Suspected PTB - Used Quadtab as my medicine

I have suspected PTB due to feel strong pain when coughing and the only medicines relieved me from pain in my coughing is the PYRAZINAMIDE as one of the medicine inside the Quadtab. The doctor advised me to take the Quadtab for 2 months then Tritab for another 4 months but after taking the Tritab for the end of 5 months I encountered mild coughing with phlegm due to my Allergic Rhinitis. Can I take again the Quadtab for 1 week to relieve again from coughing then go back again to Tritab for the remaining 1 months left for maintainance. Thanks
